Copper/Steel Coffee/Wine Glasses Done!

I've had my eye on these glasses for awhile - and I finally got them and then added my own flair by painting them.  Each one is unique so everyone knows which glass is theirs!

What's for Dinner????

What's for Dinner?  For the Last few weeks I've started a rotation so I don't have to think so hard to plan my meals with all the extra cooking, I don't adhere perfectly and sometimes swap the days but I've been sticking with this and its made it so much easier to plan and cook!
Monday's - Leftover Night (or Soup/Sandwiches if we don't have any):  this week I made egg salad sandwiches.

Tuesday - Mexican Themed Meal  this week I made chicken pepper stir fry with homemade guacamole - since I don't eat poultry...I had black beans, guacamole, peppers, black corn chips and tomatoes.

Wednesday - Homemade Vegan Chili(I always make it vegan)

Thursday - Creative Cooking Night (Indian/Asian/Brazilian Inspired etc...) - Tonight's made up meal - click for recipe:  Seafood Rice Stew with Spicy Tomatoes

Friday - Pasta Meal

Saturday - Traditional Farm Style - "Meat"/Potatoes or Rice/Vegetables/Bread

Sunday - Pizzaclick for recipe

Thanksgiving Syle Meal Delivered!

I made "Thanksgiving" food for my family.  Delivered to my Dad and my Son as well.

You can only get a 12 lb turkey this time of year - good thing I was cooking for 5 vs 30!
All non-dairy for my Son.  Made homemade "mushroom soup" with non dairy for my sons green bean casserole.  All the sides were vegan (except eggs in the pie).  Not pictured homemade gravy from the turkey drippings.  My Dad made his famous cold carrots and Jello with fruit cut up to share.

For my Dad - he loves the neck!

For my Son - plenty to share with roommates.
Not Pictured - at least this much for us left at home.  My other son said the next morning "Mom - you should do a thanksgiving style meal like that more often - I'm not even hungry yet!".  This coming from a kid that eats 5 big meals a day!
